Ground Clearance?

For the lucky owners of the 1M, what is the ground clearance of the lowest point of the front bumper? Is there a felt like material like the E92 M3s?

Be very careful.

I haven't checked, but if it's anything like my E91 330D then one can snag the bumper over a kerb and almost rip it off!

The underneath of the front buumper on my 330D looked like a tiger had been fighting with it. I'll post pics later. Not a pretty sight.

It's the diff cooler you have to watch out for when driving over road kill.

That's a bit scary for Edmonton winter driving.

Or rock fall. Hopefully if you snag the fins they'll snap off before tearing a hole in the cover.

I've already scraped the bottom of the spoiler going up a driveway that was steeper than I thought. I hate it when it's so loud everyone turns and looks!

Should be fun in those deep ruts on the side streets, no?

Thanks, for the info.

Seems like it's higher than the E92 and E46 M3. That's good.
